Handsome, Named Luftwaffe Hermann Göring Division Leutnant Evening Dress (Gala) Jacket- This private purchase jacket is produced in a top quality, super soft blue/grey wool that is excellent. The jacket is double breasted with two rows of four silver pebbled aluminum buttons. The one closure is a chain with two silver pebbled buttons. The lay down collar is piped along the front and lower edges in a silver aluminum rope twist piping. The sew-in shoulder boards are produced with silver aluminum rows over white badge cloth, indicating this was for a Hermann Göring Division Leutnant (equivalent to a 2nd Lieutenant). There is a gorgeous, drooptail Luftwaffe Officer breast eagle of silver bullion over blue/grey badge cloth neatly hand applied to the right breast. The left side of the tunic has a pair of loops for a single award and small ribbon bar (a WWI EKI and ribbon bar are included). The interior is fully lined in blue rayon that is excellent. The sleeves are lined in white rayon. There is a tailor tag in the pocket which has the name of the owner, as well as the name of the tailor. The handwritten name of the owner is difficult to read so I won’t try. A large tailor tag is seen in the neck area, this was produced by “Mohr & Speyer a.g.”, which had locations in Stettin, Berlin and Hamburg. Truly excellent, and top quality!
